In a blog post, Product Manager Sung Hu Kim writes about "expansive experiences" before explaining ways in which more context has been added to tweets.

Twitter last month revealed expanded tweets and has since brought select media partners including Digital Spy and Kickstarter on board.
Hu Kim explains: "When you tap a Tweet linking to a Kickstarter project, for example, you can play its video directly from the tweet details view in your app. You can also read article summaries when you tap tweets linking to [approved] sources."
The update also incorporates enhanced push notifications allowing users to better customise which events trigger alerts and adds the recent search and autocomplete improvements to the mobile products.
The app icon has also been refreshed to feature the new Twitter logo.
